The Contagion of Yawning.
"Did you ever notice how conta
gious yawning is?" said a round faced
young man waiting for a cable train
yesterday afternoon. "You can make
any man yawn if you go about it pro
perly,' continued the young man.
"I have to travel up and dwn this
line a good deal and I amuse my
self that way. Women yawn oftener
than men, and fat men oftener than
lean men. The best time to make
them yawn is early in the morning or
late at night. Than all they want is
a hint and off they go. One night
last week l sat next to an old gentle
He got on at Tenth street and
rode up to Grand aenue. I made
him yawn twenty-seven times. Then
I was tired but the old fellow had got
into the habit and I thought he would
split his jaws he kept them so far
The young man had scarcely seated
himself in the car before he turned
around and stared straight at a work
ingman opposite, who of course,
looked at him. Then the young man
leaned his head lazily .against the win
dow, closed his eyes opened his mouth
very wide and began to yawn with
great deliberation and an air of utter
weariness. .The man in the blue over
alls became interested and stared
intently .11 the wide open mouth and
the closed eyes The young man put
up his hand with affectation of cover
ing his mouth.ar.d then as if it was no
use to try to check an overpowering
impulse, he drew his hand away threw
his head still further back and uttered
that sound peculiar to the hearty
yawner ho-ho. A moment later the
man in the blue overalls gave evidence
of a twitching of the jaws a spasm
shot across his cheeks and then his
mouth opened and he yawned so wide
that it appeared as though he were
goiug to divide and tne top of his
head would go on up into space.
The workingman was now started and
all the way up he kept yawning every
few moments. Then the young man
turned his attention to an old lady
opposite with equal success.
